Maps can be very
complicated, hence it may be
very hard to find something
or somewhere on it!
To make it easier to find
places, grid lines can be
drawn on the map, these grid
lines form grid squares.
If each of these lines are
numbered the exact position
of a square can be given.
When you place the numbers
next to one another they form
a four figure grid reference
which give the position of a
square.
